The Boomerang, also known as the wooden boomerang[1] or Blue Boomerang,[2] is an item in The Legend of Zelda series, making its debut in The Legend of Zelda. It is usually colored yellow. Link can throw it to stun enemies, activate distant switches, retrieve small pick-up items, or defeat weaker enemies. After hitting its target, the Boomerang moves back to Link. In some of the earlier games, the Boomerang can be upgraded to the Magic Boomerang.

  • In a Family Computer Disk System promotional video, it is seen at one point during development of The Legend of Zelda that the old man offered Link the choice between the boomerang or the sword.[4] A screenshot of this scene appears in western manuals with Japanese text blacked out,[5] despite Japanese manuals instead having a screenshot of the final version where the old man only offers the sword.
